I use utility blades all the time. You can roll over a little burr and they cut really nice. I use a piece of blue painter’s tape attached to the not-blade side to make holding it (and control of cut) much easier.I have a scraper, but I haven’t sharpened or burred it, I’m slightly worried about messing it up. I used utility knife blades today. It worked pretty well but my thumbs and index fingers are slightly blistered. Next time I’ll wear my leather gloves I suppose.
Thanks Freeman, I’ll look up how to properly setup and use a scraper before my next binding.
Tip: Mark the side that has the burr. If you’re like me, the old eyes don’t see that tiny rolled over edge very well.
